The Nate Before Christmas was a CotLI event, running from 16 to 29 December 2015 and from 15 to 27 December 2016.

Event DescriptionEdit

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring...apart from a horde of unrelenting monsters intent on your destruction.

In a fit of festive enthusiasm, Nate decided to find a some holiday decorations for his house. Unfortunately, Nate was kicked out of his village for a drunken incident involving an axe and the town Christmas tree in the main square.

Now Nate finds himself and his fellow Crusaders wandering the snowy winterland searching for redemption.


New CrusadersEdit

As luck would have it, on his travels he'll have the chance to recruit two brand new Crusaders.

Tier 1 RecruitsEdit

TNBCRoboSanta Screen

RoboSantaEdit

RoboSanta and Frosty the Snowman will "bring the heat" to the gang of Crusaders once you complete their objectives. However, they are going to make it hard going.

RoboSanta has a bolt loose and instead of the generous, jovial Saint Nick, we get a rotund, avaricious dude who debuffs his fellow Crusader's gold generation by 20% up to a total of 80%.

TNBCFrosty Screen

Frosty the SnowmanEdit

Frosty puts his fellow Crusaders 'on ice', literally freezing a random Crusader and debuffing their DPS by 100% every 15 seconds. He'll also chill all adjacent teammates' DPS by 20%.

Tier 2 RecruitsEdit

The Dark HelperEdit

TNBC DarkHelper

The christmas elf is a damage reducing buffer, like Dark Gryphon, who he replaces. He also learned some Ambush-like abilities enhancing damage and gold in tight battles.


Robo-RudolphEdit

TNBC RoboRudolph

This robot is a pure DPS who likes to co-op with other robots, similar to The Exterminator.


Tier 1 ObjectivesEdit

Once you've recruited the two new Crusaders, the remaining three tier 1 objectives are Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, Milk and Cookie Run and the 2016 addition You've been Naughty. Rudolph will lead you on a mission to find the remaining eight reindeer and leave you with four slots for Crusaders by the end of the objective.
